Like I said most not all. I have seen people come in the LHS and grab whatever oil they have without a care in the world

Yep. My dad runs his scalers without shock oil.

He only runs Axials and that's exactly what made him stop filling shocks. We all know how much stock Axial shocks leak! He did eventually get aftermarket shocks on one of his trucks. I'm not sure if those are fully filled or just enough to keep the piston and seals lubed.

A nephew of mines runs his SCX10 with gmade scale shocks on. It just has grease I think. Wobbles everywhere, but does ok. He just isn't bothered by it so much as he is more into drones and fpv stuff.
